Making Change

By Sarah Rovinsky

There’s been an ongoing push to get a woman on currency. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced in 2015 that he might replace Alexander Hamilton, the current face of the $10, with a woman. Loyal supporters argued the removal of Andrew Jackson, a man responsible for the Trail of Tears and opponent to the central banking system, instead of  Hamilton, a  founder of  the nation’s modern financial system.

Hamilton will remain as the face of the $10, but expect leaders of the women’s suffrage movement to make an appearance on the backside. Jackson, however, will be completely replaced with Harriet Tubman. Change (I couldn’t resist the pun) may not be in the near future. The soonest we could see the new bills could be 2030, as CNN reported.
